Full description

Visit the iconic Colosseum and be transported back to the Roman Empire. Stand in the amphitheater that was once the entertainment center of the city, hosting fights between gladiators and even wild animals imported from Africa and the Middle East.  At the Forum, your guide will regale you with stories of political intrigue, betrayal, and triumph. See what once was the heart of day-to-day life and explore the remains of the most important buildings and spaces of one of the greatest ancient settlements.

If you choose the express tour, you'll skip the Forum visit for a 2-hour tour that gives you more time afterward to explore Rome on your own. Then, discover Palatine Hill, where the legendary Romulus is believed to have founded the city. It became the location of the houses of affluent Romans and then home to the emperors. The ruins are impressive and the view over the Circus Maximus is a must-see.

Exciting trip with a lot of information about the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. We started in the Colosseum and it was good as there are generally MANY people there and it therefore requires some profit both to listen to all the stories from one's guide, follow his own group and relate to all the other visitors who also go in gait. Our guide was super passionate and very knowledgeable and there was all the money worth getting a lot of facts coupled with great stories. We would have liked a little more intro to Forum Romanun, but otherwise really good

Our guide (Paulo) was very passionate and knowledgeable. A wonderful experience that we would highly recommend. We also got caught in a snowy thunderstorm and he continued on even in these unfortunate weather conditions. Paulo made the experience the best it could be and it was lovely to see somebody so passionate about their work. Thank You

Rather small group (12 people), led by Pietro who made us take a beautiful journey back in time. With passion he led us first to the Colosseum then to the Palatine and finally to the Roman forum. Highly recommended. I wish everyone to be entrusted to a guide like him!
